REMEMBERING THE CHILDREN
There has been an outpouring of support from Cairns and the broader community, rallying to ensure Serer Ge Buai Giz – Au Esoau Kemer Kemer Uteb Narid (Celebrating Family – Thanking the Wider Community) is a joyful afternoon bringing families together in remembrance of the eight Manoora children who died last year. This free public event will take place from 15.30pm on Saturday at Brothers Football Ground, Stan Williams Park, Behan St, Manunda. An evening concert follows at 6pm, featuring local artists and beginning with a performance by children from the Songs of Murray Street project (above). The day’s events draw to a close at 8pm. A pastoral service and tree-planting ceremony will be held in remembrance the following day, Sunday, from 11am-1pm at Green Park, Murray St, Manoora. The event is facilitated by Red Cross Community Healing Project.
